2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draught at Rover, Göteborg
It has an hazy golden color; the head reduces to a thin creamy layer. In short, it’s an average Ale: the body, the light malt flavor, the hop. But, what surprises me the most, is that the aroma has an evident roasted malt presence, and the flavor is strongly affected by the black malt, or coffee; the final just becomes worse, with a too strong black malt presence, a bit sour; if I were blind, I would swear I’m drinking a very harsh Stout, but this is not black ??? I’m lost…
Anyway, due to these characteristics (the roasted malt), I don’t like it.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Drauhgt at The Rover, Göteborg. Orang/golden color, offwhite head. Hoppy perfume aroma, some chocolate notes. Rather strange perfume and hop flavor. Bitter finish. A bit strange and really not very much to my liking. Maybe its me, maybe its the beer...

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled draught at 3 Små Rum, Göteborg. Pours out in a hazy dark golden with a small fluffy white head. Toasted malts, grass, mild spices and apples in the aroma. Medium to light-bodied with notes of burnt malts, green apples and grapefruit. Dusty mouthfeel. Long aftertaste with notes of burnt malts, green apples and acidic oranges. Almost impossible to categorize and the acidic notes was a bit too much for me.
